Formed in Toronto in 1975, Triumph were one of the few bands to boast the inclusion of a lead vocalist/drummer in the shape of the towering Gil Moore. Completing the line-up were guitarist/vocalist Rik Emmett and bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, who, along with Moore, released their self-titled debut album via the independent Attic label in 1976. Triumph enjoyed incredible success with their RCA albums, Just A Game (1979) and the UK charting Progression Of Power (1980), which included the UK hit single 'I Live For The Weekend'. Further success followed with the Platinum certified album, Allied Forces (1981) and Never Surrender (1982) which achieved Gold status. As part of the Millennium Remastered Series, Progressions Of Power, Allied Forces and Never Surrender are enjoying a well deserved overhaul with each release containing new sleeve notes from recent interviews done with Mike Levine and Gil Moore and previously unseen photos from Triumph's own archive. Castle. 2005.

Better artwork, but has more bass than U.S. version

"This CD version has better artwork than the American version, but I don't believe it sounds as good. It has too much bottom end and bass, so buy the U.S. release instead. Now, if you like more bass, then this might be for you. The new Japanese version has very little bass, so it is your choice. Rock on!"

"I just got done playing pool and this album was playing. I thought I'd review it. It's solid rock 'n roll on the heavy side at times and on the softer side at times. This Canadian group has some good material. Allied Forces was released in 1981 and it still sounds relevant today. Favorite songs of mine are "Fight The Good Fight" and "Ordinary Man".
I give this album my recommendation."
